Funny day on the forum, while we are in the philosophical bent - my mate flogged me a GT Karakorum in Tequila sunrise (yellow/red fade)

Now, he doesnt have a lot of money and has 3 young kids to look after and didnt have enough to pay for the Gary Fisher I sold him at a knockdown price (I got the GT in part ex).

Now he wants the Karakoram back and has offered me £50 back for the frame. I'm reluctant to sell it back as he's always skint and its the equivalent of flogging a classic car to the banger racing fraternity, his main tool is a hammer, his second is a bigger hammer....

Question is do I keep it or flog it back?

could it be that he doesn't like the fisher?

It's a difficult one, I would miss such a good looking bike, but if he is a real friend I would..... as long as he doesn't punt it on for more money and he is going to use it.

I think it would be a shame to split the bike up too - it looks pretty original

More of an 'aquaintance' than a friend.

and it was just the frame, the parts you see are mine

I'd keep it then, unless he cries.
